Bake Cookies

Keep this one easy and bake store-bought cookie dough following the package's instructions (Image 1). (We went with a ginger-molasses cookie.) Once baked, allow cookies to cool on a baking rack (Image 2).

Melt Chocolate

While the cookies cool, combine the chocolate chips (Image 1) with the vegetable oil (Image 2) in a glass or ceramic bowl, then microwave on 50 percent power in four 30-second bursts, stirring until smooth (Image 3).
